In the indigenous people of Ngadha, Flores (8°52’40.45”South, 120°59’8.18”East),the phenomenon of sustainability could be seen in its very interesting architectural traces in the setting of local facto rs. The sustainability phenomenon had a high value in their life and it was clearly indicated in daily activities as well as farmers, weavers, or carpenters. The phenomenon was unique and has been successfully created as a model. The research has been done by qualitative method in inductive paradigm. The data collection and comprehensive analysis have done in the field by occasional discussions with some sources of Ngadha traditional experts, vernacular architecture researchers,sociologists, anthropologists, and others. The result was a model of sustainability of vernacular kampongs within Ngadhaculture, namely Tuku nunga lo’a ghera adha Ngadha. The concept of sustainability was a cultural event thatsynergizes the five factors supporting continuously sustainability until the optimum momentum of sustainability occurred in those synergistic conditions. The five factors were natural environment (one nua), indigenous community (mesu mora), vernacular architecture (sa'o bhaga ngadhu ture), economy (ngo ngani), and Ngadha culture (adha Ngadha). The significance and impact of the research were to provide input for the completeness of sustainability knowledge, especially the vernacular kampongs sustainability model.
